HAMILTON, Ont. -- Hamiltons offence was sputtering with a crucial piece lost to injury, but the Tiger-Cats defence held the Edmonton Eskimos at bay long enough for a comeback. After losing running back C.J. Gable at the start of the game, the Ticats forced three turnovers and Zach Collaros connected with Brandon Banks for the winning touchdown in the fourth quarter en route to a 25-23 at Tim Hortons Field on Saturday. "The defence was unbelievable," said Collaros, who finished the game 25 for 35 for 275 yards with one passing touchdown, one rushing touchdown and one interception. "I gave (Edmonton) a touchdown, and if you take that away, we win this pretty easily." Having just returned from the disabled list, Gable suffered a shoulder injury on the teams opening offensive series and did not return. The Ticats had not dressed a replacement. Hamilton head coach Kent Austin said the loss of an effective running option played havoc with his playbook, and forced offensive coordinator Tommy Condell to get creative. "That was one of the all-time top performances Ive ever seen from a playcaller," said Austin. "It had a cascading effect on our personnel groupings. We actually had to rename some of our groupings." The Tiger-Cats (4-7) held the Eskimos (8-4) to 316 total yards in the win. It was Hamiltons second consecutive win, and their third in four games. Hamilton has now won consecutive games against West Division opponents after beginning the season 0-6 against the West. Edmonton quarterback Mike Reilly was 23 for 42 for 268 yards with two touchdowns, two interceptions and a fumble. Eskimos head coach Chris Jones deemed the game winnable, but the execution just wasnt there. "Everything we could possibly have done to let them back into the game, we did," said Jones. "Defensively, it looked like we hadnt practised all week." Collaros dumped a short pass to Banks, who turned the corner and ran 42 yards for the touchdown that gave Hamilton a 24-16 lead. Defence ruled the first quarter as neither team got on the scoreboard and Hamilton held Edmonton to just 12 net yards of offence in the first 15 minutes. Hamilton marched the ball to Edmontons six-yard line as the quarter came to an end on a drive that included a 31-yard reception by Andy Fantuz, his longest of the season. But the Ticats were forced to settle for a Justin Medlock chip-shot field goal from 13 yards. Edmonton receiver Fred Stamps moved up to second in the Eskimos all-time receiving yards list with a 30-yard catch in the second quarter, passing Terry Vaughns previous mark of 7,681. After a 64-yard punt single got the Eskimos on the board, the visitors benefited from an undisciplined play by Ticats defensive back Delvin Breaux, who was flagged for a combination of unnecessary roughness and pass interference that netted 34 penalty yards and moved Edmonton to the Hamilton eight-yard line. Another penalty, this one to defensive end Eric Norwood, moved Edmonton to the four, and the Eskimos crossed the goal-line three plays later when Tyler Thomas hauled in a pass from Reilly in the flats. The Eskimos defence seized on the momentum and added to their lead on the Ticats ensuing drive, when Odell Willis popped the ball loose from the arms of Collaros and Alonzo Lawrence returned the fumble 16 yards for a touchdown to give Edmonton a 15-3 lead. Edmonton running back Kendial Lawrence left the game with a lower body injury in the second quarter and did not return. "We ran the tests at halftime, and he was showing concussion-like symptoms," Jones said of Lawrence. In a third quarter dominated by the defences, Hamiltons Rico Murray intercepted Reilly for his team-leading fourth pick of the season. It was the seventh interception the quarterback has thrown this year. The two teams combined for 11 sacks through three quarters. A crucial interception by Hamilton cornerback Courtney Stephen to open fourth quarter spurred a five-play, 40-yard touchdown drive that ended with a one-yard sneak by Collaros and gave the Ticats a 17-15 lead. After Banks winning touchdown at 12:20 of the fourth quarter, the Ticats added a single point on a punt single at 13:26. Reilly found Fred Stamps for a touchdown with six seconds remaining in the game. Sven Andrighetto Jersey . Huntelaar also had a penalty saved by Wolfsburg goalkeeper Diego Benaglio.

Tyson Barrie Jersey . -- The Los Angeles Dodgers signed Cuban shortstop Erisbel Arruebarrena to a $25 million, five-year contract Saturday.SUNRISE, Fla. - Gerard Gallant needed no sales pitch from the Florida Panthers. Hes aware that they have not won a playoff series in nearly two decades, that they missed the playoffs by a mile last season and that they change coaches on an all-too-regular basis. None of that deterred him, either. "You look at their roster, you look at their team, you look at their core players," Gallant said. "I think its a great opportunity and Im looking forward to working with this hockey club." He now has that chance, after being introduced as the 13th coach in Panthers history and the teams eighth bench boss since 2003. Gallant hasnt been an NHL head coach since 2006, but has plenty of experience as an assistant and a very successful stint as the head coach of the Saint John Sea Dogs in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. His best player there was current Panthers winger Jonathan Huberdeau, whos considered a key part of Floridas plan to turn things around. "Of course I was excited to hear that news," Huberdeau said of his reaction to Gallants hiring. "Gerard has been a great coach for me. He taught me a lot of stuff when I was in juniors and its because of him that Im in the NHL right now." When Gallant and Huberdeau were paired in juniors, their team won just about every night, or so it seemed. No ones expecting that in Florida, but some parallels will exist from that team and now, Gallant said. "Jonathans a great kid," Gallant said. "I knew the kid for tthree years and we worked well together.dddddddddddd Were going to have 23 players who are going to work hard and compete." Panthers general manager Dale Tallon called the search exhaustive, and the team was linked to plenty of other candidates throughout the two-month process, most notably the likes of Peter Laviolette, Barry Trotz and Dan Bylsma. When he met with Gallant, Tallon expected him to be in a downtrodden mood the first interview was two days after the Montreal Canadiens, with whom Gallant was an assistant coach the past two seasons, were eliminated from this years playoffs. Instead, Gallant was high-energy, eager, excited. Tallon was impressed. "Ive never heard a negative word said about Gerard Gallant in any capacity in hockey," Tallon said. Its the start of a hectic time for Florida, which holds the No. 1 pick in the upcoming NHL Draft one they could trade away and is expected to be a busy player when free agency begins July 1. And Gallant knows very well how quickly things can turn around. When he was hired in Montreal, the Canadiens were coming off a season where they finished with the fewest points in the East. With Gallant on the staff, the Canadiens won a division title in 2012-13, and topped the 100-point mark in the standings last season. The Panthers would enjoy nothing more than him being part of a similar turnaround in Florida. "The league is so close," Gallant said. "The teams are so close together now."
